About the chef
Chef Faiçal Zahraoui

Chef Faiçal Zahraoui, Known by his initials FZ, Faiçal Zahraoui is a Moroccan chef renowned for his unique reinterpretation of Moroccan Fusion cuisine. Rooted in locally sourced, forgoten ingredients, Zahraoui’s cuisine is an imaginative cross-pollination of ancient cooking techniques, such as fermentation and dehydration, Morocco’s vibrant street art scene and his natural ability to reinvent familiar, fresh produce into unique signature flavors. In 2022, Faiçal Zahraoui represented Team Morocco at the prestigious Bocuse d’Or Africa, where he won the silver medal, qualifying Morocco to the final to be held in Lyon in January 2023.
